The civic and residential architectural structures, spanning the early decades of the 1900s through the 1960s, that defined America's presence in the Panama Canal Zone are here examined. Through over 1000 images and detailed text, explore the major civic architectural achievements, including the Beaux Arts styles Administration Building and Prado, Gorgas Hospital, Balboa School, YMCA, Union Church, and the Panama Railway Station. Residential architecture is also looked at, including the re-purposing of the French structures that remained from France's efforts to construct a sea level canal, and the permanent concrete block, mid-century houses built for employees and their families.
